Rehabilitation Services Q & A

What are the goals of rehabilitation?

The main goals of rehabilitation services are to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and restore normal physical function. Different types of rehab services are available to address each of these unique goals, depending on the cause of your injury or pain, so you can recover as soon as possible.

Am I a candidate for rehabilitation services?

Dr. Buberman performs a physical exam and explains your diagnosis before recommending rehab services. Some rehab services are used during the acute phase of an injury — such as the first few days after a car accident or work injury — while others can be used later on in your recovery to improve the function of your joints and soft tissues. Depending on your diagnosis, Dr. Buberman may recommend a variety of treatment options, including rehabilitation services.

What rehabilitation services are available?

Dr. Buberman offers a range of rehabilitation services to provide safe, effective relief from pain without relying on drugs or surgery. Rehab services he may recommend for you include:

Electrical nerve stimulation

This technique uses soft pads placed on your skin to send light electrical impulses through your muscles. This decreases muscle tension and tightness, which can relieve pain and improve range of motion.

Therapeutic ultrasound

Dr. Buberman uses ultrasound to address inflammation and pain in your muscles, ligaments, and tendons. This gentle heat source increases blood flow to the injured area to speed up healing.  

Hot and cold therapy

Dr. Buberman may recommend ice or heat therapy to either numb an area or increase blood flow in order to reduce pain.

Athletic taping and bracing

Taping and bracing may be used to stabilize an injured area, such as an ankle sprain, rotator cuff injury, or the lower back after lifting a heavy object at work.

Traction

Traction gently stretches the soft tissues surrounding your spine to improve range of motion, especially after an auto accident.

Soft tissue therapy

Soft tissue therapy incorporates different forms of massage to reduce muscle tension, improve blood flow, and decrease pain.

One or more of these services may be used during your rehab visit, based on the location and intensity of your pain as well as your diagnosis.
